To say that I spent a fabulous day with Shelley would be an understatement. It was both delightful and informative! Shelley ensured that I experienced the traditional points highlighted in a Jewish tour as well as special ones - like tasting local bagels and challah. Thank you for a great day and your follow up, Shelley. Should my travels take me back to Melbourne, I certainly would like to spend more time learning about the city from you!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Janet Thank you for your kind review. I thoroughly enjoyed spending the day with you and hope we will be able to do so again in the future. Best regards Shelley

Shelley was simply amazing. Our family of four was interested in seeing and understanding the Jewish community in Melbourne. Shelley gave us a great overview of the history and current make up of this wonderful community. Shelley took us all around. . . from the bakery to the jewish book store to the holocaust and jewish museums. she even got us into a synagogue which was closed where we had 1 on 1 time with the rabbi--a gem. Shelley knew everyone around town--she is the mayor of Jewish Melbourne.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: To the dear Goodman family Thank you for your kind review. What a pleasure it was for ME to meet YOU I just wish we had had more time together. I hope to catch up when I am in Boston as I hear great things about your community. Fond regards Shelley

Shelley is an outstanding tour guide. She has deep knowledge of the Jewish history and culture of Melbourne and the rest of Australia. She took a personal interest in us and customized the tour accordingly. She extended the tour time as we took an intense interest in the Holocaust museum. The entire experience was unhurried and thoroughly engaging. We highly recommend this tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan and Paul It was my pleasure to show you some of Jewish Melbourne. I hope this will not be the last of your voyages of discovery into what Australia has to offer. Wishing you a safe return. Best regards Shelley

Shelley was an amazing tour guide for Jewish Melbourne, as her knowledge was extensive and her delivery was very pleasant. She also taps in to what her clients' primary interests are and zones in on them. She was so accomodating--we really felt this tour was personalized just for us! We were also glad she included the Jewish Holocaust museum on the tour for us ; this was unexpected. It was really a full day of learning and touring!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lily and Aaron I am so pleased you enjoyed the tour and am always happy to help people learn about our wonderful city and community. Best regards Shelley

One of the best tours we have ever had. Shelley, not only had deep specific knowledge of Jewish heritage in Melourne, she had broad knowedge as well from her living in Israel. She coupled the knowledge with passion and a most effective communication style. A highlight among many was her complete explanations of the exhibits in the Jewish Museum.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so glad you the tour and hope you continue to enjoy many more exciting tours with the family.It is always wonderful to see a number of generations happily travelling together Fond regards Shelley

The guide was prompt and generous with her time. The tour ended mid afternoon. She drove, and we walked. I saw a synagogue and toured the museum with her. We went to some shops that stock kosher foods. We did not tour schools or the Holocaust Museum. She finished the tour with a drive through St. Kilda where I saw Luna Park and Acland street. She recommended an exhibit at the state library which features books that changed the world. She redirected my plans to go to Government House from wrong guide info.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Patricia, Thank you so much for coming on my tour. It was a pleasure to meet you. Unfortunately this time we did not have sufficient time to see both museums and we cannot now for security reasons tour inside the schools. I hope I will have another opportunity in the future to show you more of the community. Best regards Shelley

Shelley was superb. An intellect of a University Professor who gave us the "Full Monte" of Jewish life in Melbourne. Loved visiting the ethnic suburbs as well as the other Australian spots she showed us. Would highly recommend her for any of the tours she offers. This one was fantastic. Ellen and Paul Walk
